Paperback binding, illustrated in colour. - As a founding member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, John Everett Millais spearheaded the most radically modern artistic group in the history of English art. This new publication will present for the first time a balanced view of the entirety of the artist's career, taking advantage of much new scholarship that allows us to see him in the fullness of his production, and to treat the late works of his career as being as remarkable and as vital as his Pre-Raphaelite productions. The catalogue relocates Millais' work to its proper place within prevailing currents of European artistic innovation and practice in the second half of the nineteenth-century. Millais is revealed as a complex artist who was as interested in Realism as he was in Aestheticism, with significant and surprising links to Manet, Carolus-Duran, Whistler and Sargent, and who helped to develop a resurgence in taste for British eighteenth-century art. The most complete and up to date publication available on Millais, this catalogue will feature chapters on 'Early Works'; 'Pictures of Romance'; 'Aestheticism'; 'The Grand Tradition'; 'Fancy Pictures'; 'Society Portraits' and 'Millais in Scotland: Late Landscapes'. It will also include a full chronology. 272 pages. Category: Art & Design; Art History: c 1800 to c 1900; ISBN: 1854376675. ISBN/EAN: 9781854376671.
